Money Lures Archer King Foefcefs $16,000 By RON' SPEEtl Associated Press SpoHs Writer PENSACOLA, Fla. (APi Lanky George Archer fays lie would like to cut down on his golfing trips. But he admits he hates to stay home and miss out ofl all that money offered on the pro lour. "I should lake a week off after every four or five tournaments." the new champion of the Pensacola Open said after his closing 63 gave him a $16.000 payoff Monday. "But when I sit around home for a couple of weeks I get to thinking about the money I'm not making.' 1 Archer almost passed up the Pensacola tournament, but his wife, Donna, talked him into playing. "I had a premonition that he might win." said Mrs. Archer. "Beside, we had flown to Florida and I didn't want us to fly back after just one tournament." Archer almost dropped out in the first round when he became sick to his stomach while playing. but he shot 66 and decide'd to keep going. He added rounds of 68 and fin before his closing burst gave him the title with a 72-hole total of 2fi8. 20 strokes under par and the lowest total on the tour this year. The 6-foot-6 cowboy from Gilroy, Calif., won the championship with a blazing finish which he needed to edge veteran Dave Marr and yoiing Tony Jacklin of Britain by a shot. Archer, who trailed both of the other contenders most of the round, shot in front with a closing siring of birdies. He sank birdie putts of five, eight and five feet on the last three holes. fufesday, March 26, 1968 SftOWNWOOb Baltimore Hurlers Shutout Skein Birds Bring Back Memories of '66 By MIKE REGHT Ai»oci«t«d Prill Sport* WHttr It's only baseball spring training, but.
